Trial Date For Fox Lake Murder Suspect Delayed

(Beaver Dam) The trial date for a Fox Lake murder suspect has been delayed. The two-week jury trial for Laverne Ware Jr. was scheduled to begin September 17 but has now been rescheduled to start March 4. During a motion hearing Wednesday, Ware’s new legal counsel – Aneeq Ahmad – asked the court to adjourn the trial to a later date. Attorney Kurt Klomberg objected to the request and said that this was another attempt to postponement the case further. Klomberg has maintained that Ware is intent on delaying the proceedings till the end of time and is victimizing those who wish to see the case move forward. Judge Brian Pfitzinger warned the defendant, who has hired and fired multiple attorneys over the course of the last year, that if his new representation withdraws at any point the court will find that Ware has waived his right to an attorney. Pfitzinger said that any new counsel or Ware must be prepared to proceed as scheduled. Ahmed told the court that he has no intentions to withdraw and plans to see the case through to the end. The 37-year-old is accused of murdering his girlfriend and first cousin, Sesalie Dixon, in December of 2016. The 27-year-old was found in the cab of Ware’s pick-up truck inside a Fox Lake garage with a gunshot wound to the head.
